N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU:- Officials of various constitutional bodies recommended by the Constitutional Council will be sworn in today without a parliamentary hearing.
The swearing-in ceremony was held at the President’s Office, Shital Niwas at 9 am, said Bhesharaj Adhikari, personal secretary to President Bidyadevi Bhandari.
According to the constitutional provision, the appointment of the office bearers of the constitutional bodies must be approved by the parliamentary hearing committee. But the government is preparing to make the appointment without a parliamentary hearing.
If the parliamentary hearing committee fails to give a decision within 45 days, there will be no impediment to the appointment. Based on this, the President’s Office has made preparations to appoint him today.
However, legal experts argue that the 45-day limit does not make sense if Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has dissolved parliament from the presidency and the parliamentary committee does not exist.
There is an arrangement for the heads of the constitutional bodies to be sworn in by the Chief Justice and other members to be sworn in by the heads of the concerned bodies.
The Constitutional Council had recommended for appointment to 38 posts in the constitutional body. Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli, who is also the chairperson of the council, had appointed the government in favor of the Constitutional Council by bringing an ordinance after the council meeting could not be held and a decision could not be taken in his favor.
